My name is Elsie J. Pelowook from Savoonga which is on St. Lawrence Island. I am a Siberian Yupik Eskimo and from the Lakaghmiit clan. Tagneghli is my eskimo name. Siberian Yupik is my first language. Norton Sound Health Corporation is my sponsor and after completion of this training program, I will be returning home to Savoonga to provide care as a DHAT.

I am from Fort Yukon, Alaska. My goal was to start a career that was always different and challenging. I got an education as a Dental Health Aide Therapist so I could return to my hometown and work with the people of my community. I try to make the people confortable, and educate them on how to keep from getting cavities. I have a lot of friends here and like to help in anyway I can. I like to go camping, hunting, and fishing. I also like to bead and play basketball.
